and nothing should be construed as representing the views of anyone in the obama administration. between those two pillars, and tried to navigate a path. i would like to take a moment and explain to you an argument warfare ino conduct this strange way. the united states has been involved in a global armed conflict with al qaeda and its affiliate organizations now for approximately 15 years. it was engaged in that global armed conflict before the u.s. government agreed that it was in it. -- al qaeda knew. but al qaeda was able to forcefully expressed to the u.s. that it was in such a conflict in august of 1998. here we are 15 years later and we are talking about whether that conflict can be conducted with remotely piloted vehicles in many countries around the world. let me offer two different paradigms' for how to think about this problem. in these paradigms' i will try to make this very clear and maybe too clear. you need to do three things. first, you need to define what is the doorway through which i must ensure that allows me to kill these people? what is the doorway? second, having passed
